Will Rogers Physical Education Syllabus
Teachers: Ed Tupper, , Marty McCrory, and Breanna Parker
“Physical education is an integral part of the education program for all students. It teaches students how their bodies move and how to perform a variety of physical activities. Students learn the health-related benefits of regular physical activity and the skills to adopt a physically active, healthy lifestyle. Students also develop positive social skills; set and strive for personal, achievable goals; learn to assume leadership; cooperate with others; accept responsibility for their own behavior; and, ultimately, improve their academic performance.”-Physical Education Model Content for California Public Schools
The five overarching standards are listed below:
6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Standards:
